, our commitment to israel's security spurred the u.s.-israeli development of missile defense technologies to keep israelis safe from rockets and missiles. those systems and newer technologies continue to protect israelis from the range of threats that they still face today. president obama and i -- and i think you heard this from the president in his q&a earlier today -- remain deeply committed. indeed determined to ensuring israel has the ability to defend itself by itself. that is why in fact, by any measurement, president obama's administration has done more than any before to make israel more secure, including funding iron dome, which i saved untold -- which has saved untold lives by intercepting hundreds of rockets that might otherwise have struck schools, hospitals, or homes. deepening our day-to-day security on an ongoing basis. negotiating a new, long-term memorandum of understanding to lock in long-term military assistance for the future. providing access to the most sophisticated u.s. military technology, such as precision munitions, the f-35 joint strike fighter, t
defenses. he said israel would need strong ties throughout the middle east . he wrote as much in the israel i declaration of independence. promoting bonds of cooperation with israel's neighbors. that did not happen right away, of course, but israel has always known it is strongest when it extends its hand in peace, when it is in the high moral ground. that is why the declaration of independence of israel went on to state from day one that israel would "do its share in a common effort for the advancement of the entire middle east." the entire middle east. that was the vision of the founding fathers. now, i understand that some think the current upheaval in the region makes this an inopportune time to try for peace, but i happen to agree with what prime minister netanyahu wrote in a rather remarkable open letter to the citizens of israel that he wrote in the beginning of these negotiations. he wrote that the dawn of a new era in the region is exactly the right time to recast israel's relationships and to change the narrative with a new generation that is starting to make its voice is heard --

placed too much of a burden on the defendant. >> that's right. the burden is never on the defense. at most they can be required to show by a preponderance but never proof beyond a reasonable doubt. in most states all the defense has to do is raise a reasonable doubt. it's for the prosecution to show that it was not self-defense. that is their burdenen and not the defense. and placing the burden on the defense created a very critical error which is why the case has now been reversed. >> we all started talking about this case during the trayvon martin case. a black woman could not seem to achieve the same rights under this law as a white man could. >> exactly. i think in this case one of the things we need to always think about is she was going to the garage to get a licensed handgun. she had been to the firing range. she knew how to use the gun. she was trying to defend herself. she was in her own home and she was not afforded the same treatment. in the second trial they will not be talking about stand your graund. >> and the prosecution is the same. let's listen to her making the

of his defense of that claim, karl? >> i thought it was ludicrous. the president said if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor period. he didn't say you will have to pay a lot more to keep your doctor unmy plan. frankly from the very beginning, one of the principle assumptions of obamacare is, that there are too many choices. that people have too many choices when it comes to ininsurance policies. so let's make them all look-alike. and you have too many choices when it comes to doctors and providers. so let's do thing in the design of the law that necessarily limit the number of providers and number of doctors you will have access to. that necessarily means the president was absolutely lying when he said if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. bill: full-throated defense, karl. people aren't stupid. wallace said the president guaranteed me i could keep my doctor. emanuel said, if you want to, you can pay for it. >> exactly. you can have anything you want as you come up with the jack for it. look, this is why i'm amazed, first of all they try to defend it. the presiden
ago the state department called on china to rescind its air defense identification zone. specifically they called on commune to rescind it's procedures which provides a bit of democratic wiggle room. but it's an ambitious call so when vice president biden goes to beijing to meet with chinese leaders he'll have to speak to them about that and sell that proposition. >> what else will be on the agenda, if anything? >> it's important to know that this meeting has been in the works for some time. to some extent it's an effort to make up for president obama's earlier canceled trip to china and to asia, which was planned in october but had to be canceled because of the emanant government shutdown. other issues will be covered. continued recallcy transon the part of north carolina. and the air defense identification zone is just one item on a big agenda between the world's leading powers. >> what will be the perspective on this. >> they'll say 20 other countries have air defense zones including japan, that japan has repeatedly complained that chinese planes have flown into japan's air defense

this point real quick, pedro. china has unilaterally declared an air defense identification zone over the east china sea. part of that extends over the sun -- part of that extends over the senkaku islands, which china and the ban -- and japan are debating over who owns it. i was in japan a couple of weeks ago. i got to meet with folks from the government and the japanese parliament, as well as going to okinawa and visit some of the military facilities out there. the u.s. is positioned on these senkaku islands, and they fall under the u.s.-japan treaty because japan has demonstrated control over the senkaku islands. -- has administrative control over the senkaku islands. withchina is trying to do the air defense identification zone is to argue that japan has administrative control over the airspace and those islands. on the one hand, president obama ordered the military to fly b-52 bombers, they were arty planning -- already planning to go through there, but he went through with it to signify that they do not recognize it. it is a problem that unlike , japan and the republic of south k

. this assertion of the air defense identification zone extends over the territory well removed from the chinese mainland and in particular it covers islands that are held by anne claimed by japan. so there is a lot of aggressive territorial claims with how other countries respond to it. it will either be a success where they will back off. jenna: how are they doing so far? >> vice president biden was in japan before going on to china. while he said that the chinese declaration of this could lead to mistakes and was dangerous, he did not reject it explicitly, which you should have. the administration told the american civil air carriers to give china notification when their planes transit to avoid mistakes. japan and south korea have told their commercial carriers not to give notice. so anyway, we are acknowledging it. what we want is to resolve this peacefully, but i believe that china saw weakness on the part of the united states and i think we will see other productions of power as we have in the south china sea and elsewhere as china asserts authority and doesn't find the united states conte

the best defense is a good offense. that's what the president was doing today. challenging his opponents to come up with a better system. from the beginning of the healthcare debate talking points suggested that congress pass limited targeted laws to address unfairness in the system. things like allowing healthcare insurance companies to compete nationwide the increased competition would drive down costs things like free healthcare clinics for the uninsured where he they could just walk in and get whatever help they needed. but president obama didn't want that he wanted income redistribution along with healthcare access. and the only way to do that, to take money from the haves and give it to the have notes is to impose a government-run healthcare system and that's what we have. the feds dictate the coverage, the cost, and the sign-up plans. the problem is many working americans will have to pay more and some doctors will not participate. the end result, the economy gets hurt, doctors become harder to see. mr. obama didn't address either of those things today and they are crucial in the

defense which makes guns. it was rejected because the nfl's policy bans ads featuring firearms. the problem is in that ad, there are no guns except for one in the logo which the company offered to get rid of. still no go because this is really not about guns at all but the idea of guns. and how distasteful they are, not to you, but to people in the media, the ad execs, tv producers, all who wouldn't know a real gun if it poked them in the butt. why all the violence and the booze commercials trying to propagandize the sport just the idea of mentioning defense makes them jittery in their snotty intolerance. the enlightened media over you. why it's okay for bob costas to lecture you but a gun company can't buy time to talk protection. why does self-defense scare these nfl execs? well, someone becomes scared of an opposing idea when they know their own perspective is personal, not fact ral. statistics even from our own government dispute so many cliches about lawful gun ownership that it favors the gun owner. while the media can hate a certain right, what they really hate more is y
on the appropriations committee, that sequestration is unlivable. >> that being the defense industry. >> yes, mostly. on top of that, the next which takes spending to $967 billion almost comes exclusively out of defense. another $20 billion cut around january 15th strictly from defense budgets. so there's an appetite among the hawkish wing of the house republicans to just get rid of this. they realize that if they are going to get rid of this, they have to give in a little bit. >> weirdly, sequestration is now having the impact they believed it would to get a deal in the first place, untenable budget cuts. i think jonathan's point is really important. this is, if you're watching at home, this isn't the grand bargain. politics is the art of only the possible. the possible in this case is something very small. there is clearly no appetite for brinksmanship again. it is getting what they can get done. not getting into a bigger intractable fight that might shut down the government or cause really hard political pain on either side explaining to their base what they are getting but what they are giving u
